A second year for The Event @ Allenton

A second year for The Event @ Allenton

Allenton Big Local funded another Event @ Allenton for 2015, which was held on 25 July at Merrill Academy and was attended by over 1,000 people.

The focus of the day was to provide a fun community day for local families. Activities this year included rides and inflatables, stalls and games, food and drink, fairground rides and circus performances in a mini big top.

The Event was also an opportunity for Allenton Big Local to let local people know about funding opportunities such as the Community Chest and Bursary Scheme. Members of the Allenton Big Local Partnership Group were on hand to provide information about how to apply.

During The Event, we took the opportunity to carry out our annual survey of local people to get their views on Allenton. You can read the results of the survey here.
